Bill Pierson died July 29, 2017. He was born on November 24, 1956 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Bill is preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Jeanne Pierson. He is survived by his beloved wife of 35 years, Lisa Pierson, his daughters Sarah Pierson, Katherine Wade and her husband Vincent Wade II. He is also survived by his sister Cynthia Lindsay and her children as well as many beloved family members. Bill graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in business in 1985. He worked in accounting for several years but he really excelled in sales. Bill won several national sales awards. He also owned his own business for many years.

His ultimate passion was Jesus. His next true passion was loving and serving his family and church. Bill was active in Houston's First Baptist Church for over 35 years. He sang in the choir for 30 years, he has served as a Sunday School director for over 30 years, and has served as a deacon for 25 years.
Bill was loved by all who knew him. He was funny, kind, tender-hearted, positive, and so encouraging. He was the greatest husband and Father. He treated his family and friends like they were the most important people in the world. People were drawn to him because they saw the love of Jesus in him. We are all reassured he is in Heaven rejoicing for eternity.

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His faithful servants." - Psalm 116: 15
